The Ministry of Public Health has announced, on its Twitter page, a change to the current vaccine priority group eligibility criteria adding teachers and school administration staff to the list as Qatar expands its National COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.
On Twitter, the Ministry stated that in order to accommodate this drive, the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has opened a mass vaccination center at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) to roll out Covid-19 vaccinations to teachers and school administration staff.
To ensure the safety of the community, invitations for appointments will be delivered in a phased approach.
Teachers and school administration staff will receive an SMS that invites them to attend the vaccination center during dedicated time slots, the Ministry said in a statement.
MoPH also affirmed that vaccinations will be administered only to those who have received an invite. The others are requested to wait until they receive an SMS invite.
